The Linferion Foundation has a great devoted team who are professional, efficient and really care. I've witnessed team members go out of their way to help clients in need. I've also worked on many well-planned projects with the team that were extremely successful. Team Linferion's compassion and organized nature is what sets them apart. Great Job Linferion!

The foundation was there when I had no other place to turn. The staff is extremely helpful and caring. I would most definitely recommend this organization to any one in need and even those in a rough spot.

The foundation provided me with clothes to look presentable to interview. They also provided me with interview help and resume writing. This allowed me to become self sufficient. Im now working and taking care of my 2 children on my own. This company went over and beyond to help me and so many others. I can never say thank you enough.

I remember volunteering for the summer lunch program and working with the parents and children. On one occasion a young mother had her baby there and her baby was crying. I asked what was wrong and she explained that her baby needed some milk but wasn't old enough for the program. I told her that there is no need for your baby to be hungry so another volunteer and I asked the program lead if we could give the baby some milk. We were told we could. You see the lead always bought extra food and drink, because she didn't want anyone to leave the program hungry. We gave the lady milk for her baby and some extra to take with her because she walked to the program. The lady was so happy because she said her baby hadn't eaten since the morning and this was enough to last her until her mother came and brought her some milk later on. Kudos to Linferion and keep up the good work!

When I was put in touch with the Linferion Foundation I was at an all time low in my life. I had lost my job, and due to a fall required surgery and was in a poor financial state. Barb came to my house and helped fill out the necessary paperwork and I was able to receive foodstamps along with helping me apply for HEAP and I received energy assistance. Barb has such warmth and genuine concern for the people she helps and puts her heart into it. Her professionalism shows through and she has a wealth of knowledge. She also told me that once a client always a client which is comforting to know. I would refer anyone in distress to the Linferion Foundation for help. I am forever grateful.

I contacted Linferion to acquire funding for a homeschool curriculum kit. I was quickly approved for the funding, the items were ordered by the organization and even delivered to my home by Barb. Without this funding, it would have been difficult for us to afford our curriculum set for this school year. Linferion has helped to make our school year a wonderful homeschool experience !! L.F.

Very professional. The vision for the task was outlined well and any support that was needed was available. It was very easy to work with them. I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again.

I volunteered with the Summer Youth Food program. I loved working with the team as they served low to moderate income youth summer meals. The team was extremely organized and compassionate. I can't wait until next year when they run the program again.
